The music which plays when inside Zanaris
Zanaris, also known as the Lost City, is the home of the fairies and is the moon of Gielinor. Accessed during the Lost City quest, the settlement is notable for bearing several amenities, such as a marketplace to buy a dragon longsword, or the highly useful fairy ring transportation system.
The entrance to Zanaris is located in the shed in Lumbridge Swamp. It is the city of the fairies and can only be accessed once the Lost City quest has been completed. The city, in all likelihood, is deep underground.
Travel[edit | edit source]
The fairy ring code for the main portal in Zanaris is BKS. Zanaris can also be accessed by wielding a dramen staff or lunar staff and entering the small hut in the middle of Lumbridge Swamp, north-west of the Mining tutor in the East Lumbridge Swamp mine. Players can also gain access via The Abyss to the Cosmic Altar.
There is a one-way fairy ring to Al Kharid bank from the market area.

Notable features[edit | edit source]
Fairy rings[edit | edit source]
- The fairy ring is located south of the water fountains and west of the farm field (code BKS). Activating the ring while carrying a dramen staff or lunar staff will open a combination window to enter a code to go to other fairy rings elsewhere in Gielinor.
- The other two original fairy rings in Zanaris are exit rings only:
Bank and shop[edit | edit source]
Market area[edit | edit source]
The market area lies to the east of Zanaris and costs one cut diamond to get in. The gatekeeper will stop players with any sacks from entering.
Finally, the exit from the market is to the north-east of the market area; by entering the fairy ring, players will find themselves behind Al-Kharid's bank. Players cannot return back.
Cosmic Altar[edit | edit source]
The Cosmic Altar lies to the south of Zanaris. There are two Agility shortcuts that allow faster access, requiring 46 Agility for the medium shortcut and 66 Agility for the advanced shortcut. Players will take 4 damage if they fail these shortcuts.
Crafting[edit | edit source]
Cooking[edit | edit source]
There is a wheat field and a nearby windmill, so flour is easy to make here. There are also several fountains for collection of water, though these are by no means the closest water-sources to a bank in the game. There is also a cooking range to the south of the bank.
Among the cows near the wheat field is a milk cow, and in the windmill, there is a churn. Combine that with the bucket spawn near the windmill and the nearby bank, and all the requirements for making butter, cream and cheese are present.
Slayer[edit | edit source]
Evil Chicken's Lair[edit | edit source]
Mining rocks are also available. Using a rope on the tunnel entrance leads to a small chamber with dragon eggs and the baby black dragon.
Other features[edit | edit source]
- There is a yew tree to the north-east of the bank.
- There is a furnace, but its distance for the bank makes it of little use for anything except possibly glass-making, making use of the nearby sand pit.
- Near the Cosmic Altar, players can gain access to Tanglefoot creatures seen in the Fairytale Part I quest, as well as Mutated Zygomites.
- When players are in Zanaris, they'll often notice strange things happening. Sometimes, a frog or a small choir will come to annoy them, rain clouds can appear over their head or they'll get a sudden urge to dance.
- Players may also be turned into a chicken, pig, or rabbit for a second.
- In the middle of the wheat field is a permanent crop circle to the Impetuous Impulses minigame.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Using the New Official Client's expanded draw distance, it is possible to see the lower level of the Evil Chicken's Lair from the southern edge of Zanaris. This is because Zanaris, like all areas not on the overworld map, is actually located on a section of the world map north of the Wilderness which houses all of the underground and other non-surface areas of the game.
- The Zanaris choir will follow players into random events.
